MOSCOW, October 9. /TASS/. Russia considers the current situation in the south-east of Ukraine as ceasefire, Russian presidential aide Yury Ushakov told journalists on Thursday, October 9.
"The situation (in south-eastern Ukraine) can be considered as ceasefire," Ushakov said. "This situation is very different from the time when active combat actions were in full swing (in eastern Ukraine)," he noted.
The presidential aide said a “more constructive process” is underway, although this is not a complete ceasefire. He expressed hope that the situation in the region "will further stabilize."
Russia is asking nobody for sanctions imposed against Moscow to be lifted, Ushakov stressed. “We’re asking nobody for sanctions to be lifted. We are neither asking to impose new sanctions,” he added.
